Holy Cross captures fifth straight WCAC volleyball title

Holy Cross captures fifth straight WCAC volleyball title

The point that sealed the fifth straight WCAC volleyball title for Holy Cross was as bizarre as it was exciting. It happened so fast that you could miss it if you'd looked away, but rest assured the Tartans will remember it for a long, long time.

Off a spike by Bishop O'Connell's Maxine Friedman, the conference player of the year, Nicole Daosprawled for a dig that caught just enough of the ball to keep it off the floor. Riley Parchment flicked it in desperation a foot higher. Her sister and the play's server, Jade Parchment, somehow got a decent swing for a kill. 

"Typically it's plays like that where you feel the pressure," said Jade Parchment, a junior.

Not this time.

The sequence gave Holy Cross a four-point lead in the decisive fifth set, and the Tartans went on to a 3-2 win by scores 25-10, 21-25, 25-16, 20-25, 15-8. Holy Cross will play the winner of the ISL in the Metro City Championship at 6 p.m. Monday at Holy Cross.
